The origins of this marvellous hotel can be traced back to the 13th century, thanks to the discovery of original internal stonework, which is still visible in the hotel today. The hotel's name 'Le Fontanelle' derives from the pre-existing water fountains and stone 'fonts', which were used for gathering spring water. These were renovated and enlarged during the first half of the 19th century utilising existing medieval materials that were found on site. This area, originally a rural Etruscan community, was subsequently occupied by the Romans, then in the early Middle Ages by the Longobard population. Over the centuries 'Le Fontanelle' has seen various owners and had numerous uses, until finally it became a simple working farmhouse. It wasn't until 1999 that restorations began to transform this ancient building into the luxury hotel it is today.
Before dark, enter into the intimacy of your bedroom, and marvel at the beautiful Tuscan landscape framed by every window; each view in turn an exquisite masterpiece. The sensual touch of the fresh crisp linen and the smooth soft furnishings enhance the magic.
Entering the hotel is like opening a box of delights - each room is exquisitely furnished providing not only a calm and warming atmosphere, but also a rich and sensory experience.
